The upper half of Missing Link.
Access is by pushing up the walking track. Biking on the walking track should be kept to a minimum to reduce conflict with walkers.
Starts at Ben Lomond saddle, starts by heading out on riders right of the walking track. Crosses the walking track occasionally. Be careful of walkers, give way to walkers. This is a pretty busy walking track with novice trampers who might get pretty nervous about bikers, give them heaps of space, then crank it up once your away from the walking track.
Finishes at low saddle, the follow down Lower Missing Link.
